Hickok Cole is pleased to announce that Holly Lennihan has been named the firm’s first Director of Sustainable Design. Holly has been with the firm for 18 years, focusing the majority of her experience on historic preservation, adaptive reuse and repositioning projects. For the past few years, Holly has been spearheading efforts to develop Hickok Cole’s high-performance building practice, and is currently overseeing a multi-year grant with the District of Columbia’s Department of Energy and the Environment to provide budget analysis for short- and long-term costs associated with building sustainable infrastructure.

“Holly’s special talent for putting together multi-disciplinary teams has helped address and advance a wide scope of sustainability issues for both our clients and the industry as a whole, the highlight of which is her work as project manager on the Net Zero renovation of American Geophysical Union‘s Headquarters here in DC,” said Hickok Cole Senior Principal, Yolanda Cole. “Moving forward, Holly will be leading several business development efforts to push forward new innovations in mass timber, as well as educating building owners in the benefits of Net Zero and beyond.
